Battling Our Biases
with Father Boyle
12:00 - 1:00 PM
ICSC Lecture Hall
When Father Greg Boyle founded Homeboy Industries, he established a culture of creating
second chances for individuals in Los Angeles. His work has only been possible by talking to people about how we as a society can move away from the language of violence and isolation toward a language of understanding and breaking biases. We have subconscious perceptions that sometimes lead to our own dehumanizing understandings of people. This mindset can cause us to treat individuals as violent caricatures rather than who they are in reality. Father Boyle will discuss how we can shift into a more transformative mindset through which we can practice patience, compassion, and empathy to build better relations with those who have different life experiences.
